I have talked previously about introducing new art mediums to children – like watercolour paints and oil pastels, and the importance of supplying children with the best quality art materials that you can afford as there is nothing more satisfying than creating with rich, strong colours on the page. As a result, I am always on the lookout for new, child friendly art mediums to use with Immy and recently came upon Crayola Twistables Slick Stix. They are like a soft, oil pastel in toddler friendly form. The colours are really intense and the crayon just glides across the page.
Immy really enjoys drawing with them, especially at the easel, and we have had a number of children come to play who have been quite taken with them too (the picture at the top is by one of Immy’s friends). Who am I kidding, I also love drawing with them! They really are that good.
In fact, a number of packets have made their way into Christmas gifts for the children in our lives 😉
Have you discovered a new art resource that you love lately? I would love to hear about your finds.
P.S. This is not a sponsored post, just me sharing about a product that we like using 🙂
